It’s first (and most important) line of business is protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, but it’s also integral in any premature aging regimen.
Leading Dermatologist Dr Katherine Armour explains: “One of the main myths I find almost every day at work is the belief that using a foundation or moisturiser with SPF offers enough protection and that’s not the case.
“I say to my patients, ‘those overseas formulas are a useful adjunct but they're not designed for the Australian sun’. The reason for that is that they don’t offer broad-spectrum protection so if you’re going to be outdoors you need to wear a sunscreen as well”

This ultralight sunscreen feels undetectable on the skin and boasts a very high UVA/UVB protection with broad spectrum SPF 50+ for maximum protection. The fluid formula is ideal for normal to combination skin types.
Former beauty editor and Go-To founder Zoe Foster-Blake recently created the brand’s first (and highly-anticipated) sunscreen. Aptly called Zincredible, this formula is ideal for sensitive skin types and the perfect make-up base.
In a statement announcing the launch, Zoe explained: “Four years ago, I began working on a daily moisturiser with physical sun protection. I saw a gap in the market for a natural daily moisturiser with broad spectrum, mineral UV protection, that was riddled with Zinc Oxide and antioxidants… but not greasy, full of shit, shiny, pore-clogging or ghosting.”
Invisible Zinc’s Sheer Defence is a lightweight tinted formula perfect for those no make-up days when you still want some coverage. Free from chemical ingredients, this physical sunscreen is made with Zinc Oxide to offer maximum UV protection. Available in three shades: light, medium and deep.
